The right side and rear portion of this Marietta home built in 1988 were settling. Examination of the site revealed that one portion of the site identified by Palmer Engineering for helical pier support was covered with the home’s air conditioning unit. The side was blocked by a huge juniper bush and a concrete patio in the back restricted access there.
Scope of Work
The remediation plan called for installation of 350 feet of supports. In order to perform the work, the engineer marked a layout that surrounded the air-conditioning units, removing one pile. A portion of the juniper bush was removed and the concrete patio was cut for placement and replaced after installation. Installation was completed in two days.
10 remediation Under Pinning Brackets were installed.
Full resistance to maximum capacity of the ground.
The goal was to arrest any further sinking and fully stabilize the foundation going forward. At the request of the client, no effort was made to lift foundation out of its current position. The obstacles made full installation a two-day job. At the end, the home was stabilized and the customer was satisfied with the work and guaranteed future stability.
